The “Wellcome” Photographic Exposure Record and Diary, 1914

Nature volume 92, page 449 (18 December 1913) | Download Citation



THIS neat, handy, and useful little pocket-book contains the concentrated essence of photographic practice, and anyone who has used it once will no doubt, like the writer, continue to secure it annually. The issue for 1914 does not materially differ from that published last year, except that everything is brought up to date. The great success of the tabloid form of developers, & c, is acknowledged by its most general use, and this issue gives, among others, one illustration of Mr. H. G. Ponting using the “Rytol” developer in the hut at the winter quarters, and another by him of the Terra Nova off Cape Evans. The special device attached to the cover, which tells the correct exposure at one turn of the disc and the light tables for each month, and factors for plates, films, k, are special and valuable features of the publication. Ample space is provided for logging the details of each plate or film exposed, and the usual diary portion obviates the necessity of having to carry any other pocket-book for other memoranda, engagements, &c., Three editions are published, one for the Northern hemisphere, another for the Southern, and a third for the United States. The price of one shilling brings it within the reach of everyone, and the book is well worth the money.
